This weekend in Mugello, at the Italian Grand Prix, Ducati rider Enea Bastianini will make his MotoGP season comeback. The Italian rider will make his MotoGP comeback at the Mugello Grand Prix, held in his native country. After being injured in the season's opening Sprint Race in Portimao, Enea Bastianini has yet to cross the finish line of a race so far. Earlier in the season, Bastianini attempted a comeback to MotoGP competition in the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez. The 25-year-old, though, was in too much discomfort to take part in the weekend's events. The Italian is ready to return to action after a three-week layoff and a successful test ride on a Ducati Panigale V4 S at Mugello after the previous trip at the French GP.

At the end of March, during the Sprint race in Portimao, the Ducati Lenovo Team rider hurt his right shoulder. He had planned to compete in the French Grand Prix in Le Mans, but he withdrew due to soreness and fatigue while riding his Desmosedici GP. He spoke with medical professionals and his team and ultimately opted to rest until the Italian Grand Prix in Mugello at the beginning of June. 

The Italian rider has not had a lot of success in the Italian Grand Prix in the past. In 2015, Bastianini finished fifth overall in the Moto3 category at Mugello. When competing at MotoGP, though, Bastainini has struggled at Mugello. After crashing out of the 2021 race on the warm-up lap, he did not even make the grid for the 2022 event.

MotoGP Italian GP: Mugello Race

MotoGP's much-anticipated 2023 season returns at the Mugello circuit in Italy. Mugello is a state-of-the-art racetrack which is located 30 km northeast of Florence in the picturesque countryside of Tuscany. The 5.245km track, which Ferrari purchased in 1988 and restored to a high level, is quickly earning a reputation as one of the most modern, picturesque, and safest racing courses in the world.

Mugello is one of the most difficult tracks for riders and engineers due to its variety of fast and slow bends, sweeping curves, lengthy straights, and off-camber corners. After its first MotoGP race in 1976 and subsequent renovation in 1991, the venue became a regular stop in the series. Mugello, located in a picturesque tree-lined Tuscan valley, provides abundant viewing spaces for the often rowdy and passionate Italian population.
